The budget alternative to Xbox Series X could finally be revealed this month.
The Xbox Series S or Xbox Lockhart, a lower cost alternative to the Xbox Series X, has been rumored for quite some time now. It seems that a reveal may be on the cards soon, especially following its mention on the Xbox Series X controller box. Xbox boss Phil Spencer promised more news on the Xbox Series X in August but details on the Xbox Series S could be coming sooner.
According to VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb on Twitter, fans can expect to hear more “within three weeks.” While that technically places it anywhere in the remainder of August, an announcement at Gamescom Opening Night Live seems appropriate. It’s currently set for August 27th and will kick off this year’s digital event.
The Xbox Series X, meanwhile, is currently slated to release this holiday season. While a release date and price have yet to be revealed, Microsoft CFO Amy Hood confirmed that it would be out in November. As always, stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
I'm sorry. I looked at the calendar wrong. It's within three weeks.
